This show came on late night Friday/early morning Saturday. If If NBC had put this show in with their Friday prime time shows it would have survived.
I remember tuning in to watch this show every week and always enjoyed doing so because it was such a great show to watch. I enjoyed watching the music videos that they played as well as the stand up comedians they featured every week and I thought that Rita Sever was a lovely and very cordial host.
When I was a poor college student in East Texas, it took MTV forever to
it on to our local cable provider. I remember my first exposure to a music
video, was watching The Midnight Special in the 1970's. In 1982, I got my
first look at the up-start MTV, while in Florida on Spring Break from
school. I was hooked. Spent the entire week in a chair, watching the same,
ummm, 10 videos, over and over, it seemed. If I ever see Blue Oyster
"I'm Burnin' for You" one more time, I'll scream! But most music acts had
yet to understand what importance the music video would play, and there
just a hand full to be screened. And many of those were from groups, best
NBC, caught up in the music video revolution, started in 1983 airing videos on this show. Usually there were introduced by an off camera voice talent, but I seem to recall a host every now and then.
By the mid 80's, most everyone had some sort of way to access MTV, and "Friday Night Videos" became redundant as a "music video" format. It added hosts and other bits. By then, I'd stopped watching, and accidently found the show one night, surfing thru channels.
